Autoscaling Solr

A large body of work is underway to build autoscaling into Solr with the goal of improving cluster stability and performance as well as to make cluster management simpler and easier for Solr users. The first release of autoscaling features should happen starting with Solr 7. We will go through the various features that help you setup autoscaling for your Solr clusters whether in the cloud or in-house so that:

1. The cluster can show notifications or raise alarms on important cluster events such as a node joining the cluster or leaving the cluster

2. Newly added nodes automatically start sharing the traffic and reduce overall system load across the cluster

3. The indexes hosted on nodes that either die or are decommissioned is automatically shifted to other nodes in the cluster

4. The cluster automatically attempts to reduce average system load or tries to optimize around administrator defined criteria

We shall also discuss the internal design and relevant implementation details as well as the pluggable components around these features so that interested users can customize and extend the autoscaling features as per their own needs.
